Every cage had at least one bird in it. Owls, eagles, and others. It was a great chance to see these birds up close. It's great to know that there are places like this that take care of these animals and release them if possible.

They rehab injured raptors and other birds, and release the ones that recover. Those that are too injured find a safe home here. You can tour the the cages of those that can not be released. They provide valuable education on Raptors. Great for families,
